Iran: SNSC's Shamkhani talks Russian airstrikes from Hamadan airbase

Iran, Islamic Republic of, Tehran
August 22, 2016 at 22:39 GMT -00:00 · Published

The secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Ali Shamkhani commented on the first airstrikes launched by Russia from Iran’s Hamadan Air Base against the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL) and Jabhat Fateh al-Sham in Syria, while speaking during an interview with RT in Tehran, Monday.

"The exchange of abilities in different areas is necessary in order to stand against terrorism. The recent operations were performed in cooperation with Iranian advisors and with the support of Russian aviation and the involvement of Syrian army," stated Shamkhani.

He went on to explain that a further cooperation with Russia is possible depending on the situation on the ground in Syria, pointing out "This air operation was agreed, and since the first day of its implementation it was announced that it will last just for a few days. The resumption of this kind of cooperation in the future will depend on the development of the field situation in Syria, and the cooperation is likely to happen."

A bomb wing of Tupolev Tu-22M3s and Sukhoi Su-34s were deployed from Hamadan Air Base on August 16, hitting militant sites in the Aleppo, Deir ez-Zor and Idlib provinces.
